A new film chronicles the Italian radical design movement and its key players
New York gallery R & Company and Italian production company Muse present a new film by curator Maria Cristina Didero and director Francesca Molteni, celebrating the most significant moments of the Italian radical design movement and it’s key players.
In this clip, Didero and Molteni delve headfirst into the design movement and its revolutionary approach, interviewing the likes of Franco Audrito, Lapo Binazzi, Andrea Branzi, Ugo la Pietra, Gaetano Pesce and many more. The film weaves the stories of Italy’s radical designers with the turbulent political and social climate of the 1960s and 70s, painting a picture that is as much about design as it is about the country’s history.
The documentary precedes an exhibition curated by Didero at R & Company, as well as a book, SuperDesign, by the Italian curator with contributions by Evan Snyderman, Deyan Sudjic and Catharine Rossi.
